Bill Evans Soulgrass Fall tour

Posted by Ryan Cavanaugh on Friday, October 12, 2012

To answer many banjo player's question, "Do you play with the banjo player Bill Evans?"  NO!  I love Bill's banjo playing, and I've even taught alongside him at Midwest Banjo Camp, but I play for one of Miles Davis' Bill Evans.  I play for the tenor saxophonist!  lol 

We are about to embark on a huge fall tour.  I am always excited about these tours of Europe.  I actually make more nods to Earl Scruggs and Bluegrass music when I play overseas, mainly because many of the audiences have never heard a banjo playing bluegrass music.  Many europeans have heard Dixieland Jazz, however most of them are strangers to Bluegrass music.  I make it a point to interject plenty of rolls and string bends into Bill's music when we play far from home.  It keeps me from getting homesick :)



If any hangout members are abroad in November please have a look at the tour dates.  We'd love to see you.
